Kid's Apron & Chef Hat

Cupcakes print in a terrific tutorial by Joanna of Stardust Shoes and the hat tutorial of course
and it's reversible! ( the ever popular dumb dot)
and let's don't forget the boys
stripe c323 and party dots


Erika said...

How cute! My daughter would love this, thank you.
And thank you for the great fabrics.

oh, PERFECT timing on the chef's hat pattern, thanks! I'm going to a Tube Station fancy dress party tomorrow night and was planning on whipping up one tomorrow! (I'm wearing dark grey trousers and top, hence, Baker Street!)

Julie said...

OhMY!! this chef hat and apron make me want to be 5 again!!!
thanks for the tutorial.
I will definitely be making this for my little girly chef.

SarahB said...

So adorable! And what a coincidence -- just this morning I was thinking to myself that I had to order the same cupcake print to make little aprons for my girls!

Erika said...

I have only been able to print out the apron tutorial. Anyone else having problems getting the hat to download?

Vickie E said...

wow super cute..

Stephanie said...

Oh my goodness! This is exactly the tutorial I wanted.....and I wasn't even looking for it. Thanks so much!!

I am thrilled you posted this tutorial. I will be making two sets for my little friends who I build gingerbread houses with every Christmas. But I will use gingerbread men or gingerbread houses for a pattern. Thanks so much.

This is great! Perfect for all the birthdays we having coming up. I can't download the Hat tutorial though, it keeps crashing Adobe reader!

(mozilla,firefox,explorer - all ok - so - pls email me at with your address and I'll mail you a printout. sorry for the problem

I just made the apron using the same cupcake/dot fabric for my neice's bday next month. OMG! is just so cute!! I love making quilted items, usually steer clear of wearables but decided to give the tutorial a try. Super easy! I'm planning on making one for each neice & nephew bday this yr. Thank you for posting the pattern!

Valerie said...

Hmmm I tried in both Firefox and IE but couldn't download the hat pattern. I'll try from work tomorrow, perhaps a different system will be the charm :)

Hello, thanks for such a wonderful pair of tutorials. I have several kids in my life who will now become the beneficiaries of your generosity (including my own 18 month old in a few years' time!).

Re the chef's hat:
I did a gathering stitch (stitch size four on your machine, same as a basting stitch) 1/2 inch in around the perimeter of the crown. I then gathered it all in to fit the band, by pulling and easing on the bobbin thread. It seemed an easier way to get an even result with the pleats.
I used a 1/4" seam, but in hindsight, 1/2" would've been better.
To attach band and crown, I went over that line of stitching/basting with a regular stitch. I sewed with the band side up, gathered side down.
It worked really well,I love it so much. It looks much harder than it is.
I found using this method I didn't need to bother with so many pins of matching ironed creases.
BTW, this will not fit an adult head - or at least mine (my noggin is of Clive Owen proportions, and I'm a chick!). I'm not sure what age it would go to -- I think Joanna might have mentioned something about sizing on her blog.
I hope this helps
I'm now hanging out for Monday morning to buy some D-rings so I can finish.
Oh and while I love the straps in teh original pattern, I also love Joanna's solution of using cream cotton webbing tape. that stuff just looks and feels so nice,and... i don't know,.... cheffy somehow!

Janice said...

Thank you so much for posting these beautiful apron and hat patterns! My 3 yr old daughter just said that she needs to have a hat and apron and I've been looking everyone online for something fun. I don't really sew, but I would definitely be willing to try so she can have something cool! Thank you!

Rebecca said...

Thanks for the tute! I just made a couple and they turned out really cute!

SarahB said...

I'm working on this one now, but why do I need 2 6x10 fabric pieces for the pocket? Seems like I only need one? I'm a beginner sewer, so I'm guessing I'm missing something!
